In a recent study conducted by the University of Phoenix, researchers have discovered an alarming number of roommates have no idea how to use a sponge and what, if anything, it is used for.

Researchers used props and a questionnaire to conduct the experiment. They would sit both roommates in a room and present them with a sponge. In most cases, one roommate would ask, “What’s that,” while the other one would respond, “No surprise there.”

Roommates who didn’t understand to use of a sponge often guessed it to be used as an “eating utensil” or “something you place under the sink?”

Roommates who did know what it was used for often answered in a passive aggressive tone, saying things such as, “yeah, it’s for cleaning up your messses,” and “sometimes I feel like I’m the only one in the world who knows what its used for.”

The University is continuing their research by asking roommates “how one might clean a shower drain?” and “does blasting Taylor Swift at 3AM while having loud sex seems appropriate to you?”

“The thing you put under the sink?”
